Course content

This course focuses on how to enhance occupational performance and meaningful living for individuals and groups. Theoretical models and tools are utilized in order to understand how occupational performance and participation are linked to bodily structures, function, and physical environments. Specific attention is paid to models and tools to observe, assess and evaluate occupational performance and how to design and plan interventions that promote active meaningful living in every-day life. In this course, we synthesize knowledge of occupational performance in a contextual manner in order to guide perspectives and decisions in practice for individuals as well as vulnerable groups in society.
